MANILA, Philippines – Kumpiyansang inihayag ni Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Jr. na maaaring maging “moderately prosperous country” ang Pilipinas sa taong 2040.

Sinabi ng Pangulo sa 77th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) na ang PIlipinas ay nananatiling “on track” na maabot ang “upper middle-income status” sa 2023.

“With steady investment in food security, public health, education, and other social services, we expect to become a moderately prosperous country by 2040. I am confident that we will achieve this vision,” ang wika ni Pangulong Marcos.

“Yet no nation stands alone. The achievement of our national ambition requires a global environment that creates conditions that allow all nations, including ours, to thrive in peace. We need the United Nations to continue to work. And we, the Philippines, are determined to be part of that solution,” dagdag na pahayag ng Pangulo.

Si Pangulong Marcos ang kauna-unahang lider mula sa Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) ang nagpahayag ng kanyang ‘statement’ sa high level general debate ng UNGA.

Pagdating sa food security, binigyang diin ni Pangulong Marcos, Agriculture chief ng Pilipinas ang pangangailangan na gumawa ng mga hakbang na magbibigay katiyakan sa isang “modern at resilient agricultural sector.”

Dahil dito, kinokonsidera ng Punong Ehekutibo ang pagkain bilang “very basis of human security.”

“We need to take concrete steps toward a modern and resilient agriculture for food is not just a trade commodity, nor is it just a livelihood, it is an existential imperative and a moral one,” ayon sa Pangulo.

“To attain food self-sufficiency and security, we are providing innovative solutions and financial support to farmers and fisherfolks to adopt new technologies and connect to national and global value supply chains,” aniya pa rin.

Umaasa naman ang Pangulo na makipagtulungan sa UN at partners nito para mapahusay ang agricultural productivity at food security.

“We must use public and private resources to encourage the expansion of trade, investment, and technology transfers to accelerate development. Knowledge and intellectual gains must flow freely to allow those lagging behind to catch up,” ani Pangulong Marcos.

“Sustainable development will be hampered, to the detriment of all, if existing structures in the global economy remain unreformed,” wika pa nito.

Sa kabilang dako, sinabi pa ni Pangulong Marcos na mamumuhunan din ang kanyang administrasyon sa edukasyon upang mabigyan ang mga tao ng gamit bilang sandata na kanilang kakailanganin para harapin ang hamon ng Fourth Industrial Revolution.

“Investments in education are key, and my administration is prepared to make such investments. The Philippines notes with appreciation the Transforming Education Summit held earlier this week at which these subjects were taken up,” ayon sa Chief Executive.

“There is perhaps no greater renewable resource than the creativity and innovation of our young. We understand the value of harnessing our people’s talents by creating a robust and creative economy. We will continue to work with partners in promoting this at the international level,” dagdag na pahayag ni Pangulong Marcos. RNT/JGC
